By far the best expansion for the heroes. Too bad they can't combine the components of this expansion with the beasts of Altar of Despair.

Wow are feat cards handy and wow is the combination of ice, stealth and stun annoying as hell. The feat cards alone make this expansion superb!!

This has to be my favorite expansion to date for the Descent series! I really like all of the new game elements introduced and similar to the other expansions released previously, there is so much included! So many new game components definitely add more variety to game play and tension among the heroes. The overlord becomes more well rounded and dreadful with every release! I love it!

I try not to rate any expansion a 10, just based on it being unplayable alone.
This is a close one, though...
The feat cards and interesting new characters make this expansion a real winner.
The new terrain, including a couple of new shapes/pieces are a great addition and the new monsters are decent, all around. The Ice-Worm was particularly fun to face.

Great expansion.
Feats add a hefty boost to the hero side of the board - much more than treachery did to the OL side, because heroes start the game with them.
Interesting monster types, most of which are spawnable
Interesting shop items (one with knockback and one with a really good offhand bonus)
Really nice dungeon tiles in a lot of new shapes
Quests are a nice mixture of short and long ones, and they all seem balanced.
New heroes offer a very interesting mix of abilities and stats.
Highly recommended, best expansion to date.

If you only buy one expansion for Descent, this is the one to get. I would rate it a 10 if it integrated with Road to Legend a little better.

More Descent sweetness. I wish, before releasing anything else, FFG would put out a scenario book that includes 10-20 scenarios utilizing all expansions to date. That would be a 100% autobuy for me...

This expansion adds great new monsters with great new abilities, and also wonderful feat cards. These feat cards, I think, could be used to make some of the nearly impossible Well of Darkness and Altar scenarios playable. The only reason for my moderated rating is that the scenarios given in Tomb of Ice are too heavily slanted toward the heroes. The first 4 scenarios would be better with 3 heroes. This is the best of all of the expansions so far. Especially the first 4. I think they are more balanced with 3 heroes or with fewer feat cards.

This expansion provides some new cards and mechanics for the heroes which makes the game more balanced and more challenging for the Overlord player as they no longer know everything the heroes have. That said, I would have like a little more variety in monsters and it would have been nice if the Dungeons utilized the new monsters better.

I like this expansion, it helps give the Heroes more of a fighting chance, and I like the double-sided tiles. It makes me want to get Road to Legend again just for the tiles.

Great addition for the players. Feat cards give the Overlord a few surprises. Stealth is amazing.

A few of the monsters are a bit under powered, but it does help to keep the game fun.

I am so happy that I have this expansion to spice up my "Road of Legend" campaign. There are gaming session when we don't need this expansion at all, but it always lurks in the background just in case. A must have for a descent Descent player! ;-)

After a long 6 month break from Descent, we had a marathon session for a few evenings and picked up tomb of ice. Some of the new mechanics are fantastic and the new pre made maps are great!

Feats are awesome and add some depth to hero play.

Had base game....took way to long and people would be across the table yawning as others trudged through their own turns. Combat and playtime was ridiculous. This game had great ideas and concepts but was hard to dedicate a lot of time to this mammoth game.

The feat cards are an excellent addition. Heroes' movement was sometimes just too predictable. The new chaotic element makes the overlord think his/her moves a bit more, awesome!

Stealth die looks cool, btw.

I'm relieved that this didn't rely too much into RtL but added a lot of new things to the basic questing type of game. New monsters, awesome new heroes, new everything. Definitely a lot more strategic options are included in the game now.

The best thing in the Descent games is that you don't have to master ALL the rules, only the basic rules and rules of those items currently in play.
